e are pleased to host Abner Kurtin, Founder and CEO of Ascend Wellness (CSE: AAWH.U, US OTC: AAWH) as a participant in the Viridian Capital Cannabis Expert Series.
Ascend has well-positioned flagship assets in key growth states (Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York and Ohio). In our view, geographic positioning and innovative execution to date position Ascend to be a top operator in US cannabis in the coming years and we expect execution on growth initiatives will translate to outperforming results for the company and investors. Meanwhile, following a recent capital raise and this spring's highly anticipated IPO we expect Ascend to be a consolidator in the near term seeking out assets in both existing and expansion markets.
We invite you to join an open discussion with Mr. Kurtin, hosted by Viridian's Director of Equity Research Jon DeCourcey on Friday October 1st, at 11 AM EST.
Topics to include:
-Ascend's position in key growth markets.
-The company's recently opened flagship dispensary in Boston which we believe offers a unique branding opportunity and rare cannabis tourist destination on the East Coast.
-Expansion initiatives across the portfolio.
-The New York cannabis market where the company is advantageously positioned as an "original" medical license-holder following the acquisition of MedMen assets.
-Cannabis stocks and near-term catalysts for enhanced returns.
-Cannabis M&A and looming consolidation in US cannabis and industry trends in general.
